producer and screen star appears under a director other

her. It is a tremendous story interwoven with love and 
pathos. Music! Madness! Despair! and Ruin! Because 
of his colossal conceit Eric von Stroheim is driven from 
a stage spectacle only to find that his only friend is a 
leering lifeless dummy. He loved only himself and the 
empty medals of his tinsel soul — only to find too late

trates the disguise of the smartest young Corporal in 
his army — her reward is a decoration from Queen Anne.

MURDER IN THE MUSEUM Willis Kent 

A fast action melodrama with a kick in every foot of 
the film is "Murder in the Museum". That versatile 
veteran of the screen Henry B. Walthal heads an ex- 
cellent cast, as Professor Mysto. 

The tale opens with the death of a city councilman, 
an apostle of reform, when he and his friends are about 
to conduct a raid on the Sphere Museum of Natural 
and Unnatural Wonders. The museum is crowded with 
sight-seers listening to a barker dilate on the abnormali- 
ties of the various freaks, when the shot is fired — which 
terrifies all the spectators. Who is the unseen assassin? 
— suspicion rests upon everyone, even to the Police 
Commissioner himself. 

How John Harron, the newspaper reporter and Phyllis 
Barrington, the Commissioner's niece, follow a winding 
train of clues, while the detectives are at fault; how the 
identity of the real killer is cleverly concealed; and how 
the whole affair terminates in a wildly surprising climax 
is set forth in dramatic fashion.

PARADISE VALLEY Imperial 

"Wings" Bonners, a radio crooner, develops a dread 
disease called "over-conceit" — he loses his place on the 
radio program because he only appears for his broad- 
cast when the notion strikes him. The crooner believ- 
ing that if he left town his sponsors would realize their 
great loss and recall him. 

So "Wings" heads for the great West — and when he 
arrives in the cattle country, "Paradise Valley" — he 
walks right into a lot of trouble. The ranchers are 
looking for a desperado who has been killing their sheep 
— "Wings" being a stranger and unknown to the ranch- 
ers, their suspicions immediately center on him. The 
radio star is even accused of murder — he is on the point 
of being lynched — but of all strange Westerns his abil- 
ity to sing at the crucial moment saves him from the 
noose. 

The men of the posse are none other than the famous 
Beverly Hill Billies — and "Wings" having had enough 
of adventure takes the posse back to New York with 
him where he and "his singers of the sage" become the 
new radio sensation.

GENERAL INFORMATION ON RENTING 



Each feature has been built into a complete 
program, running from 1^ to 2 hours in length, 
by the addition of short subjects — comedies, 
cartoons, travelogues, sports and novelties — 
mounted permanently on two 1600 foot reels. 

Gaumont-British and Universal features can- 
not be used in locations that are competitive with 
theatres. Bookings must be approved by Gau- 
mont-British or Universal before we can accept 
them. 

Bookings on both the programs and the sepa- 
rate short subjects may be made as far in advance 
as desired. However, we cannot make changes in 
the short subjects that are mounted with fea- 
tures; programs must be taken in their entirety. 
Short subjects that are listed separately will be 
mounted on big reels in the order specified. 
When ordering it is advisable to name two or 
three alternate selections to be sure that you get 
something desired in case the original selection 
is not available. 

There is no surcharge for time lost in transit. 
Shipping charges both ways must be paid by the 
customer. Return shipment must be made 
promptly on the day folloiuing the scheduled 
showing. Please do not rewind the films after pro- 
jection. 



ATTENTION - CARE OF FILM 

Sound Film is very delicate material and its 
successful projection depends on your careful 
handling. 

A silent projector cannot be used for sound 
films under any conditions. 

The breaking of the film is not a serious mat- 
ter if taken care of properly. Stop the machine 
at once and rethread the remaining part of the 
film. Do not repair broken film ; the splicing will 
be done at the Library. Return all damaged 
parts of the film. 

Your own reels should be straight and in per- 
fect condition before using our film on them. 

32 



If your projector is not kept clean you are 
bound to have trouble. The whole mechanism 
is extremely delicate, — the smallest particle of 
dust on the sound track or the least scratch on 
the emulsion will distort the sound. 

Moral— KEEP THE FILM CHANNEL CLEAN. 



ADVERTISING MATERIAL 

For the features in the Index marked with the 
asterisk* we can supply 11x14 colored lobby 
cards. We cannot be responsible for the subject 
matter of this material as we must accept what 
is released by the producers for theatres. 

To our weekly and biweekly customers this 
material will be included in the shipment of 
films, i.e. — the publicity for the following week 
will be sent with the preceding week's shipment. 

The price of this service is: 

Set of 8 cards— $1.00— Refund of $.50 on return 
of cards. 

Set of 4 cards — $ .50 — Refund of $.25 on return
